Oh, I know. Super last-minute announcement, it's not even showing up on my FB feed because of FB's algorithms, it's right after the biggest shopping weekend of the year so people may not have the cash, announcement on the website hours after FB, no forums announcement, and they /still/ outright refuse to address the problem of artists, industry, and press needing special hotel reg times or at the very least refundable badges so that they can register, nab a hotel, and then get a badge refund if they are rejected. (It also doesn't solve the problem of travelers who want to guarantee a hotel room before buying a badge, bit I have a feeling that this is the best we're gonna get for those people)
I'll try to be optimistic, and hope that I can get an early reg time so I can get an early hotel time, but I predict server crashes and screaming tomorrow, especially with the super last-minute announcement about it whipping everyone into a panic.
Glad my sister texted me about it so I could at least put up an unofficial announcement on the forums (and know about it at all, really).
